About this paper
New business intelligence (BI) innovations in front-end and back-end technologies are raising the question - What are the capabilities of next-generation BI tools? This BeyeNetwork report profiles the capabilities of next-generation BI tools with emphasis on new visual analysis tools and in-memory processing. It examines the types of BI users and capabilities they need, including casual users, power users and IT administrators. It also examines BI architectures — how front-end tools interact with back-end servers and databases — to deliver those capabilities.
